Photos from Katie Lopez Photography, design and decor by JCG Events, florals by Anthology Co. and furniture rentals from Unearthed Vintage — this Miami inspiration session features the absolute best of the best, and the result is unlike any other wedding inspiration you’ve seen before. See all the pretty moments of this organic-meets-industrial-meets-modern masterpiece in The Vault!


From JCG EventsThe goal of this wedding shoot was to create an organic industrial modern wedding. We wanted to inspire through the details and create an overall story. This is what happens when you bring together a wonderful group of creatives in the wedding industry.

The wedding story began with our couple. They are actually married in real life and their love for each other translated through the lens. The venue 1111 Lincoln Road created the perfect backdrop for this shoot. It has an architectural design with clean lines, hanging greener, with concrete and small wood paneling detail. We created a conceptual design for this wedding to inspire and make you reimagine the elements that make a wedding.

We created a ceremony centered around a unique structure and accented with light bulbs loosely strung together to create a romantic backdrop for their wedding. Guests would then be invited to celebrate in the cocktail hour where we created a lounge area in order to make a more intimate setting for guests to be able to converse with one another, celebrate and take in the breathtaking views the venue offers. The focal point of the cocktail space was the helix dome that was placed over the Hampton bar, along with hanging Edison bulbs.

The reception would then follow. Here we used square wooden tables to create one long royal table paired with industrial metal chairs. Designing one long royal table enhanced the intimate romantic yet industrial feel we were looking to accomplish. The centerpieces consisted mostly of greenery with various textures and long black tapered candles in gold modern candleholders. The plate chargers had silver detail and a modern geometric design. We paired them with black linen napkins tucked into hammered metal napkin rings.

The cake was a clean design with a marble fondant finish. The favors were mini chocolate bars with gold calligraphy words on each of them. This concept could also serve as escort cards or place cards. This design and natural feel of the marble cake fit perfectly with the setting. It all was displayed on top of three various height crank tables.

The three spaces for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all came together in the design. We achieved visually unique experiences for guests at each space for an overall memorable and inspiring design.

After an 18-Month Engagement, This Beautiful Wedding Was Worth the Wait

Long engagements aren’t for everyone, but when you’re a Bride who isn’t sure what she wants for her wedding, a long engagement gives you time to discover your wedding style and turn your vision into a reality. And in the case of this sweet Bride and Groom, their 18-month engagement allowed them to plan their day to perfection. See it all from L. Martin Wedding Photography in The Vault!

From The Bride…I had no idea what I wanted at first so we had an 18 month engagement to give us plenty of time to decide. I wanted a venue that was different and surrounded by beautiful nature. After seeing the Davis Island Garden club we knew that was the place.

I really like neutral colors so we decided on a light color palette of white and gray with touches of blush pink. The Garden is so beautiful it didn’t need a lot. I didn’t want anything to extravagant as far as extra décor, but my own touches to make it feel like a nice relaxing day in the garden. We had an acoustic guitarist playing in the gazebo while guest entered the garden which helped to set the tone.

I made the entrance sign into the venue from pieces of pallet wood. My dad made all of the flower boxes for the centerpieces and the wood pallet cake stand. My father-n-law made our DIY photo booth frame and a stand for our succulent wedding favors. My mother-n-law and I repotted off the succulents and added the thank-you and seating assignment. We were very blessed to have all the help we did for our DIYs from both families!

My favorite moment was at the end of the night when we were leaving on the boat looking up and seeing all of our family and friends cheering for us standing on the shore. I was so surprised to see how many people stayed for the entire reception and even the send off. It was so nice to see and hear all their support at the end of the night.

My florist did an amazing job! I was a little nervous not being able to see the way all the flowers would look like ahead of time. The first flowers I saw was my bouquet when I was getting ready and I was speechless! My florist made exactly what I pictured all my flowers looking like. I loved my gown, it was so light for all the tool that it had. It was so much fun to dance in all night. I put my own touch on it with the belt and it made it fit my personality perfect. Our cake was so delicious but the only piece I had time to eat was the one my husband fed me after cutting the cake. I cant wait to see what it will taste like when we celebrate our one year anniversary.

Get a wedding planner or a day of coordinator, esp if you have a DIY venue. I did not have one and it made me a little stressed having to think of every little thing esp. since I have never been married before. I was so lucky to have my husbands family and mine to set everything up and help me along the way. My DJ was also a great help the day of making sure everything happened when it needed to.

From L. Martin Wedding PhotographyBoth of their occupations are to help others, CJ is a firefighter and Erin is a nurse, which explain their open and caring personalities! The Davis Islands Garden Club is one of the most popular spots in Tampa, with its waterfront views on Hillsborough River you can see all of Downtown Tampa. The lush backyard and gardens of this 1950 home, served as a beautiful ceremony space for Erin & CJ. They had a classic blush and grey color palette that seamlessly flowed through every detail!

Erin fell in love with gardens at the Club and all the details they had planned – the signage, florals and handmade decor made her vintage garden vision come to life! Their guests loved the floating frame her Father-in-Law made for a DIY photo booth. They stocked the bar with liquor that had been gifted to them from friend’s and family. Erin’s Dad built a custom wood pallet planter shelf for the succulent favor’s that doubled as place card’s. (This was one of my favorite details! I said a few ohh’s and ahh’s when I saw it.) Erin also made the entrance sign that welcomed guests to the wedding. So many pretty handmade details!

I love send off’s, they just end the night in a fun way. Not only did they have a confetti canon send off, they ran to the dock nearby onto a boat they chartered, that took them directly to their hotel on the riverwalk. The guests stood by the water’s edge and cheered them on as their boat went by. A truly magical way to end such a gorgeous wedding!

From Wedding Nature PhotographyWhether you’re a true bohemian Bride, or simply looking to add a touch of organic natural feel to your own affair, decorative details of this wedding are sure to inspire. Jessica and Carlos wanted a very open feel to their natural light wedding. Everything they loved about each other and their relationship was reflected in the planning and at the wedding day. Naturally, being outside for the ceremony and reception was what they were going for. They were literally obsessed with their wedding venue, sophisticated beachfront The Palms Hotel and Spa. With the softest, most ethereal natural light that creates feeling of serenity plus romantic outdoor setting of the hotel this darling wedding is the epitome of Florida’s sweetness. Flowers and greenery were very important to the pair. Little touches of flowers and soft pallet color were everywhere you looked. Pinks, whites and green, stood out all over. Everyone could see how much care and attention Jessica and Carlos put into the details of their day. Jessica’s stunning bridal bouquet highlighted an assortment of ranunculus and lovely garden roses with a pop of pale pink wrapped in white ribbon. Jessica made a truly beautiful bride in her white wedding gown and her bridesmaids wore soft blush dresses, which was perfect with all of the greenery of this natural light wedding. Clean lines, white backdrops, crisp and tender florals plus natural style put everyone in one really fantastic mood. An elegant two tier white cake was decorated with charming blush garden roses and topped with custom Mr. & Mrs. Rivera golden sign in cursive metal that was another cute inspiring idea to personalize your wedding. This natural light wedding was filled with delicious food, a stunning venue, superb lighting and good music, funny speeches, and warm embraces from friends and family. Their wedding day was for sure the one to remember – the day their life started together, as one. Now married, they are enjoying every moment of this next chapter of their lives together!

From the Bride… When we started planning our wedding, we already had a vague idea of what we wanted and what we didn’t. Before we got engaged, we had already lightly discussed the topic, and it helps when you’re marrying your best friend because you already know “he or she definitely won’t like this”. We wanted it to be intimate, filled with our family and closest of friends, in a location that would make for amazing photos and with great food. After weeks of browsing for inspiration and locations, we decided a romantic garden wedding at the Palms Hotel and Spa was the way to go. It’s local, surprisingly quiet for a hotel in Miami Beach, has a timeless vibe and already beautiful on its own. I remember telling my husband “this one is the one” after our first visit, and he agreed. Once the venue was set, the rest of the planning was focused on what would match the theme and location.

Our color scheme and linens changed a few times, along with what I wanted in a dress. When you’re planning your own wedding and binge watching “Say Yes to the Dress”, you can get pretty overwhelmed with the possibilities. Thankfully my husband is more down to earth than me, and we had decided early on a budget. Whatever we spent money on, we made sure it was something neither of us could do and that it looked top notch. Basically anything that was handmade, we made except for our “here comes the bride” sign, which we ordered from Etsy. We made our guestbook on Shutterfly using our engagement photos. I made the program fans, menus, table numbers, designed the place cards and the kid’s coloring books. We bought our picture frames from Ikea, an idea we got from Pinterest which is so useful. I even learned to mimic calligraphy with markers to design the hangers for the dresses and make a welcome sign on cardboard.

Because there were so many elements, the most nerve wrecking part was hoping everything we planned would actually look good together. On the big day, things couldn’t have been better. Everything just fell into place, and because we had a day-of-coordinator it gave us a chance to enjoy our day worry free. We kept a few secrets from each other, like how my dress looks, him in his tux and our vows until the big day which made the day just that much more exciting. When we had our first look, my husband was speechless with tears once he saw me in my gown. It’s a priceless moment, and we are just so thankful our day was filled with moments like those.
